Lot 48: Husbands and Wives

Husbands and Wives

This is kind of silly, but I was thinking the other day about how many celebrity couples have been in shows together.  I always thought it would be so fun to get to be in a show with your spouse.  I would love that!  So here is a list of some celebrity couples that have starred in television shows together, while they were married.

This is Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone.  You probably recognize Melissa from either Gilmore Girls or Mike and Molly, a show in which she won an Emmy for Best Actress.  Ben was briefly in an episode of Gilmore Girls in Season 3, in the episode where Fran died.  He was the lawyer in charge of Fran's estate and Sookie and Lorelai talked to him as he was carrying Fran's casket to the cemetery.  Remember?

Here we have the classic Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. We all know they are divorced now, but when they were still married Brad was in Season 8 of Friends,  just for one episode.  He was Ross' friend from high school and he came over for Thanksgiving dinner. I can't believe I'm doing a blog post on this topic.  This is really nerdy and I'm sure no one cares but I'm having fun doing this!

This is Steve Carell and Nancy Carell.  Nancy was in Season 3 of The Office as Carol, Michael's realtor.  They dated briefly in the show and then he proposed to her at the Indian Halloween, remember?


This is Torrey Devito and Paul Wesley.  Torrey is on this season of Vampire Diaries as Dr. Meredith Fell, and Rick's girlfriend.  They haven't even had a scene together yet, just a brief interaction when she was unconscious...and that doesn't really count. 

Will Arnett and Amy Poehler.  They have been in two television shows together, both where the other was the star.  Amy was in Arrested Development as the Navy Seal girl who owned the seal that Joeb stole or something.  I don't remember the details.  Then Will was in Parks and Recreation in Season 2 I believe as her blind date.  And he took her to get a MRI because that was his job and he was trying to impress her? Remember?

I'm sure I'm missing many couples, those are just the ones that I am aware of.  Do you know of any more celebrity couples that have worked together on a show?  Have you ever had to work with your spouse?  How did that go?

Thanks for indulging me as I wrote this silly and ridiculous post!


  1. Is that one girl in Pretty Little Liars? (see, I really should be embarrassed)

  3. The only one I could think of was the Jennifer Aniston/Brad Pitt. I have seen The Office a million times and never knew that Michael's realtor was his wife in real life!


Hearing from you makes my day!!
